The youtube account I subscribe to got shut down due to infringement right. As you know I like to accompany the visual when doing my review. So until I find an account that uploads the entire show, clips of the program are gonna have to do. Sorry folks. lets begin shall we.
John Cena comes out to start this weekâ€™s RAW a split reaction with half boos and half cheers. Cena talks about Roddy Piper and thanks him for what he said last week. He says again that everyone has the right to say whatever they want about him. Blah, Blah, Blah.
Cena switches gears and talks about CM Punk. He wants a title shot. Iâ€™m not mad that idea. Cena/Punk 4 or 5 would be a good watch maybe after WM its too soon to repeat angels.
Alberto Del Rio comes out and says the match is his. Cena says â€śyou lost and everyone saw it.â€ť Del Rio says â€śthat didnâ€™t count.â€ť Del Rio shows the clip of his head being bounced off the exposed turnbuckle last week, and says that Punk cheated. Here comes Vickie Guerreroâ€¦with Dolph Ziggler.
Dolph deserves a title proper World Title Push. Ziggler asks Cena and Del Rio if they know who has the longest title reign in the company. Itâ€™s Ziggler. That is a good point. Ziggler has been United States Champion for a long time. Segment still not over here comes The Miz.
If Ziggler/Punk dont happen I can see Miz/Punk working extremely well. Miz plugs the 3 hour Slammy Award show next week. Miz looks at Del Rio and says his title reign wasnâ€™t one month long. He looks at Ziggler and says he doesnâ€™t need Vickie Guerrero to get him over. If you caught on by now they all want shots at Punk’s WWE title.
Johnny Ace makes his way to the ring and says each guy in the ring will face a Smackdown guy and if they win they are entered into a championship match at the TLC Pay-Per-View
So its Alberto, Miz and Dolph get matches vs Smackdown superstars. If they win they’re in the TLC title match with Punk. Later that night a contract singing will take place. Cena isn’t getting the same treatment and instead will be part of a “social experiment” whatever that is. Miz is in action first against Randy Orton.
This could be the main event for tonights program but its the opening match…Great first match to have on a show. Miz wins by count out when Orton chooses to chase Wade Barrett as oppose to win.. BUT Orton turns to come back and ends up eating a forearm to the back from Barrett.come back and ends up eating a forearm to the back from Barrett.
WWE hypes the Network that will debut next year. You know Im super stoked I already watch hours of Sportscenter so its only fitting I watch hours of WWE programing.
A show called Legendâ€™s House will be the crown jewel. The premises will be WWE legends living under one roof. This has Iron Sheik written all over it.
Laurinaitis tells Ryder that Ziggler has filed a complaint against Ryderâ€™s petition for a US Championship match. Laurinaitis says he agrees with Ziggler. John Cena comes up wearing Zack Ryder sunglasses and wig. Buy the Ryder wig on WWE.COM
I can see myself wear the Ryder Wig. WOO WOO WOO. Laurinaitis says that the social experiment will be Cena vs. Ryder. If Cena wins, he is in the WWE Championship match at TLC. If Ryder wins, he gets a US Title shot at Ziggler.
David Otunga still has a career sorta. He tells Kevin Nash that he will face Triple H at TLC in a ladder match. Nash says he doesnâ€™t do ladder matches. So its a sledgehammer ladder match. Otunga says there will be a sledgehammer hanging above the ring and the winner gets to beat the other guy with it.
Mr Jennifer Hudson tells Nash that he is in action tonight. Michael Cole says it will be the first time in 8 years that Nash has a match on Raw.
Alberto Del Rio vs. Daniel Bryan. This feud could have amazing potential. D-Bryan has the MITB briefcase and ADR wants another shot. See where I am going with this. The match was ridiculously short. Del Rio counters a guillotine choke by tossing him rib first across the top rope.. cross arm breaker.
Theres a Diva’s match but more importantly we get the newest cryptic â€śIt beginsâ€ť video. The way WWE were pushing these videos with social media was innovative and brilliant. This weeks video has all sorts of confusing shit like a field a ball is rolling across the floor.
a creepy little girl in the middle of a room. The words â€ślook withinâ€ť appear on the screen. Maybe Jericho? Maybe The Undertaker?
Zack Ryder vs. John Cena. the crowd was very pro Cena. Fun match to watch. Rough Ryder countered to the AA and Cena wins.. Ryder popularity only works in major cities. Zack is pissed because “this was his only shot” Cena is all “give me one second” and leaves. So yeah Cena gives up his spot so that Zack gets another oppertunity so now Ryder has one more match up next if he wins he gets the US title match.
Hopefully it’s Brodius for weeks we seen videos hyping his return. Nope its Mark Henry no Brodius yet again. Henry is still playing the injury. Cena’s out to cheer him. I forgot to mention its a no DQ. So Cena hits the AA and Ryder wins. Ryder is official the number 1 contender to the US title. Ryder just beat the WORLD champion to get a US TITLE SHOT.
Segment of the night goes to Ziggs. In the back Ziggler is angry with Vickie Guerrero. They find out he is facing Sheamus. Jack Swagger says he will be in Dolphâ€™s corner if needed. Ziggler tells him no because he will screw him over. Swagger gets angry and the two argue. Ziggler laughs and says â€śIâ€™m just playing.â€ť Swagger says â€śok so Iâ€™ll see you out there then?â€ť with a straight face Ziggler says â€śnoâ€ť and walks away. See why Dolph is the truth.
The last time Nash wrestled on RAW was August 18th, 2003. If im not mistaken that was the night Nash tore his quadriceps after being out for months and months. Nash didnt tear anything tonight. nWo music hits and here is Nash with the sledge… Cuzo Drew texted me saying “I freaking love that he uses the nWo theme not gonna lie.” His opposition, you wonder? Santino. Side slam, big boot and the Jackknife. Nash didn’t do much but still looked like shitty. He’s got the sledge now no attack.
Ryder’s out to ruin the only fucking match I wanted to fucking see… distraction leads to the brouge kick. Ziggler loses… fuck this show…. fuck Zack Ryder…
Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus- Ziggler show boating is getting funnier and funnier every time he is on TV. Sheamus does what he does best beat opponents up. He sets up for the Celtic Cross but Ziggler rolls down his back. Zack Ryderâ€™s music hits and he runs down the ramp. Ziggler is distracted as Sheamus hits the Brogue Kick for the win.
Zack Ryder sure is being used a lot tonight. He was involved in 3 different matches tonight and had a backstage promo. Iâ€™ll never complain about that. Ryder gets in the ring and hits the Rough Ryder on Ziggler. The terrible crowd kinda cheers as loud as they have all night.
It looks like the main event at TLC in Baltimore will be CM Punk vs. The Miz vs. Alberto Del Rio. Can we all agree contract signing segments are terrible?
I really loth them. I have for years. At least Punk is in it, The Miz and Alberto Del Rio are in suits. Thats another thing I never understood why get all fancy to sign a contract?
Anyway John Laurinaitis is in the ring he talks about Brodus Clay debuting soon, he plugs next weekâ€™s 3 hour Slammy Awards show, and next weekâ€™s main event John Cena vs. Mark Henry. Then he introduces CM Punk. Punk comes down to the ring, he gets rid of the chair and table in the ring and says this is a big cliche.
He says these things always end in a pier 6 brawl and wants that term to trend on Twitter. He says Laurinaitis is neither creative nor exciting and that there hasnâ€™t been a peaceful contract signing since Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania 3. He tells Laurinaitis to play the part of Jack Tunney so that they can all sign and then fight.
Laurinaitis says the match at TLC will be a TLC match (tables, Ladders & Chairs). Miz says that he took out R-Truth and John Morrison. Punk says â€śYou took them out? Like on a date?â€ť He asks if he took them out to see the new Twilight flick.
Miz said he injured Morrison so bad that Laurinaitis had to release him. Laurinaitis says â€śIâ€™d like to take this time to wish John Morrison the best in his future endeavors.â€ť when Ace just wished Morrison the best of luck in his future endeavors with a point and wink that was pretty darn funny.
Del Rio says they are little girls and that he is the best in the world. He sayâ€™s in 2011 he won the Royal Rumble, Money in the Bank, and the WWE Championship. Punk cuts him off and says â€śif you say itâ€™s because of your destiny I swear to Jebus Iâ€™m gonna start drinking.â€ť
Get it Punk is Straight Edge and doesnâ€™t drink or do drugs of any kind. All three sign the contract Punk wants to fight after he signs but Laurinaitis says no. Ace wants a photo op so Punk hits Miz the with mic and we get a pier six brawl. Punk puts Del Rio through a table and the GTS Miz.
